Entertain yourself. Sounds ridiculously simple, but it’s much harder than it looks. You think you are, but more often than not, you’re playing to an audience, trying to entertain others. When you try to do that, you entertain no one. Just try and make yourself laugh. I once asked Scott Adams that questions. I said, “You’re so funny when you write; how do you do that?” He said, “I write to my brother. I imagine my brother reading it.”
